Abstract : In space flight, during the takeoff, landing, and in-flight adjustments, the astronaut is exposed to changing gravitational experiences that influence his cardiovascular, respiratory, and sensory mechanisms, muscular responses, etc. These physiological responses in space are monitored by telemeter systems that detect and transmit the data to ground stations. The bibliography presents 161 annotated references dealing with these aspects of space medicine, with emphasis on biotelemetry, weightlessness, visual effects, hearing effects, and animal experimentation.
